Nestled at the base of Mount San Jacinto lies The Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn and the famous O’Donnell House. The house, designed by architect William Charles Tanner in 1925, rests quietly on the bluff above the Palm Springs Art Museum and served as the winter home of Thomas O’Donnell and his wife, Dr. Winnifred Willis Jenny. Then known as Ojo del Desierto, or Eye of the Desert, the beautiful 4,100 square foot Medieval home evokes the grandeur and opulence of the roaring 20s.

A stunning mountain backdrop creates the perfect setting for your ideal ceremony and celebration. The lush desert gardens will envelop your guests in a fairytale-like setting, allowing your wedding vision to come to life. Settled on four acres of land, the patio at the O’Donnell House presents a picturesque venue for a fun and lively reception celebration, along with gorgeous views of the mountains and valley below. In 2011, The O’Donnell House was added to the National Register of Historic Places and will create wedding memories to last a lifetime.

The moment, my wife and I step foot on this property we knew this was our venue! We could not have picked a better spot!

This quaint and picture property with its gorgeous 1930s house was the perfect match for the vision my wife and I had for our special day. What made it even better was our wedding coordinator Lisa and her staff! Her attention to detail and guidance made our special day absolutely perfect! Seriously, not one thing went wrong… Credit to to Lisa and her professionalism and talents... it was a super smooth process from beginning to end. The manner in which the venue is set up is timeless, and super easy for guests to mingle. Access to every part of the property was very easy… with ample bathrooms, and room inside, with a nice, eloquent fireplace burning, if your guests get cold. Could not have been more romantic and fun of an event... This place is dialed in!

Best Venue in Palm Springs

Wow - this venue is the most incredible place for a wedding. Lisa Sipe and her team were a huge part in making our day amazing but the venue alone is stunning. Our guests are still raving about how magical of an experience it was. There are a lot of rules you will need to follow if you're considering a wedding here, and you will not be able to use the beautiful farmhouse tables they show in a lot of their photos online (they stopped allowing it), but I have no regrets about having our wedding at the O'Donnell House. I hope I get invited to someone's wedding here one day so I can go back!!!

Amazing- such a great venue!

Lisa and the other staff at the O'Donnell House were incredible to work with! Our previous wedding venue cancelled on us 3 months prior to our wedding and we were scrambling to find somewhere else to hold our event. We came across O'Donnell House and we are so lucky we did! They don't normally hold weddings during the time our's was scheduled as it is reseeding season in Palm Springs so the lawn area isn't normally accessible. They threw together a plan for us though and the layout was still going to be incredible with the ceremony and reception on the terrace overlooking downtown Palm Springs. We ended up getting really lucky and there was a scheduling mistake with the gardeners- they hadn't done the reseeding yet so we got to use the lawn :) Regardless though, the venue is just beautiful and we got so many compliments from guests and those at home that saw our photos!
Given that our previous venue cancelled our event, we had to replan a lot of the wedding day including catering, etc. Lisa was on top of it and helped us with every step. She brought things to my attention that I hadn't considered before and we are so thankful and grateful for her!
Overall, we would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone! We are honestly grateful that our previous venue cancelled- this place exceeded all of our expectations and gave us the perfect wedding day!
